Women Leaders Make a Difference.

Women Lead Change is dedicated to the development, advancement and promotion of women, their organizations, and to impacting the economy and future workforce.

Take Charge. Lead Change.

As a volunteer group of dedicated women who first started a women’s leadership conference in Eastern Iowa in 2007, Women Lead Change has come a long way. It was with their original intent of providing leadership development specific to women in the workplace that led us to the events and programming hosted now. Looking forward to progress and the years ahead.
